Raging River Swallows Russian Town in Impressive Footage Posted Online

Severe storms and ensuing floods in Krasnodar region's Tuapse have left at least two dead and more injured. Residents of the town located north of Sochi on Russia's Black Sea coast posted pictures and videos of the devastation on social media.

Here's a look at the damage caused by the heavy rains:

Rainwater surged fiercely through the district, moving cars and vehicles in its path. 

Water levels rose dangerously close to the railway track. Previous floods have flooded railway lines and delayed trains. 

The floods caused massive damage to streets, vehicles, businesses and homes throughout the district. 

Hundreds had to be evacuated while the floods continued to devastate the streets. 

The strong winds and storms have yet to subside.  

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
